It was built in 1884 according to the project of Hilary Majewski who gave it a neo - Byzantine look clearly visible in the domes and decoration details. It's the symbol of Russian influence in Poland. The pretext to built it was the salvation of Tsar Alexander from the assasination in April 1879. Richly decorated interior has a beautiful iconostas, old icons and metal procession banners.

If you happen to come in the evening for a mass, you will hear wonderful singing of the choir and Old Slavonic words of prayers, which take your thoughts to distant Eastern regions of Europe.
